Inspiring and Educating Healers

The Pacific Northwest Massage Academy mission is to educate, inspire and serve our community through the healing power of massage therapy and bodywork. 

Our Philosophy

At PNWMA, we believe in going above and beyond expectations.


This reflects in our massage therapy training program which far exceeds accreditation requirements. Industry experts with experience in the local community serve as not only educators but as mentors during and after training to offer advice and assist with career development. 

As a student of PNWMA, the above and beyond philosophy will be applied to your curriculum to bring out your healing capabilities. In the classroom and clinic hours, you'll be readied for the challenges and growth opportunities with real world clients. 

Your education as a healer does not end after graduation. We offer continuing education consistently to help graduates and other healers in our community so that we may all continue to improve our skills. We aim to be a force for quality education.

"As a former student of both Suzanne and Travis, I can attest to the dedication and passion they put into their work. Whenever a student would struggle grasping a concept or fall behind in class, Travis would use different methods to connect with the student and help them understand. Suzanne uses stories from her 20 years of experience to give us an inside look at how massage has changed and what we may encounter in the field. "
